Celtics legend Jo Jo White dies at 71

Celtics legend Jo Jo White dies at 71

He was a seven-time NBA All-Star, two-time NBA champion, and victor of the 1976 Finals MVP award.

White was a key member of the Celtics in the 1970s helping lead the team to a pair of National Basketball Association titles as one of the primary offensive scorers. His streak of 488 consecutive games played is still a Celtics record.

The tricky part of the DPE is that it can only be used in specific circumstances: the Boston Celtics can only use it to trade for a player in the final year of their contract.

"We are terribly saddened by the passing of the great Jo Jo White", the Celtics said via release. White was enshrined in the Hall of Fame in 2015. His contributions to the team's championship legacy may have only been surpassed by the deep and lasting impact that he had in the community. White's No. 10 is retired by the Celtics at TD Garden. He finished his career with the Golden State Warriors (1979-80) and the then Kansas City Kings (1980-81). The Herald reports the Celtics retired White's No. 10 jersey.

White played 60 minutes in Boston's legendary triple-overtime Game 5 win in the 1976 Finals.

White, a seven-time All-Star, averaged 17.2 points, 4.9 assists and 4.0 rebounds over 12 National Basketball Association seasons. He scored 1,286 career points.

Not only was White drafted by the Celtics, he was also drafted by the Dallas Cowboys and Cincinnati Reds.

White was a member of the 1968 U.S. Olympic gold-medal winning team in Mexico City.
